Experience the Cradle of Human Culture routes

After discovering the earliest origins of humans at the Cradle of Humankind in the north of South Africa, travel south to the Western Cape and find out how tradition and symbolism, human behaviour and technology continued to evolve near the southern tip of Africa over the past 100 000 years. If the Cradle of Humankind delves into where we came from, the Cradle of Human Culture reflects how we became what we are today.
